Poems have a way,

Of making people listen,

To words we can't say


The author's comments:

I wrote this to express how I feel when writing. Sometimes it's hard to carry on a conversation about what your going thorugh or what your feeling. Writing poetry is an easy way for me to show what I am truly feeling.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Oh my gosh I love this poem so much! I can definitely relate...sometimes the only way I can say certain things is through poetry. It's just a really good way of expressing my thoughts and feelings. But also, it's a way of making people listen, as you said in your poem. Sometimes it's only through poetry that you can open a person's eyes and make them really understand something. You can grab their attention with the musical beauty of the words and then the emotion behind those words just jumps out at them. Thanks for posting this, and I can't wait to read more of your work!!! I always love the emotions you express :D
